**SAFE 01/11/16** A friend to young children, STAR was brought to the shelter because someone in his former home became “allergic” to him on New Years’ Eve. Curious, that. He lived with them for more than a year after they found him on the street, so why the sudden rush to get him out of their home? Certainly the 3-and-7-year old kids are missing this lovely long-haired beauty. STAR has an EXPERIENCE rating, he is already neutered, he is less than 2 years old, and he has great volunteer comments. Please read this, and then save his life by stepping up to FOSTER or ADOPT, tonight! “A volunteer writes: Star will be the Star of the show, once he finds a home who will brush his magnificent long fur, grooming him into the cat he is meant to be. This sweet fellow enjoys your attention and company, meowing for you to look at him, staring at you with his little eyes lost in his fluffy face. Star is a prize to have, which you can win if you come to see this wonderful fellow.”

01/10/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Update: 01/10/15 Star does not seem to be thriving in our busy adoptions room. He has began hissing and growling when approached. His his ears bend flat and he attempts to swat when trying to interact with him. Due to his stress levels, we feel that quick placement into a stable home environment is in Star’s best interest. Star’s previous owner states that he has lived with two adults and children ages 3 and 7 years old. He is affectionate and relaxed towards everyone in the home. His behavior is unknown towards other animals, but he was kept indoors and has a medium activity level. The owner describes him as playful, confident, friendly, affectionate, quiet, and independent. He has a good behavior and enjoys being picked up and held. Reaction to Assessor: Star solicits attention immediately and rubs his whole body against the cage door, however he grumbles and whines at the same time. Reaction when softly spoken to: Star continues to solicit attention and whine. Reaction to cage door opening: Star remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Star head-butts and really seems to appreciate attention, but he continues to whine and grumble throughout the interaction. His tail sways from side to side, but will rub against the assessor for more attention. Reaction to being picked up: Star remains calm and allows handling, but grumbles. When putting him back in the cage, he will continue to solicit attention. Placement Determination: Experience Star is social and affectionate but may become overstimulated. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Star becomes overstimulated. Although the previous owners report he has done well in a home with children, due to the behaviors displayed during his stay in the care center, any future home with young children should conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
